We are pleased to announce the upcoming opening of “The Meeting of the Horse” by Greek artist Eleni Giannopoulou and Mexican artist Tania Reza at ZAZ10TS gallery, on October 16th. The exhibition will present an immersive installation of theatrical sculptures/costumes addressing the symbolism of the Horse by Giannopoulou set in dialogue with the homonymous video installation created by Giannopoulou in collaboration with Reza.

Helene Pavlopoulou is an Athens-based artist whose work pushes the boundaries of traditional perceptions of painting.
